COURSE OF STUDY OVERVIEW
The Spring Heights Extension School for the Course of Study is affiliated with the Course of Study School of Ohio, which is a joint venture of the Methodist Theological School of Ohio in Columbus and United Theological Seminary in Dayton. As an extension school, Spring Heights Extension is only open to Part-time Local Pastors unless special arrangements are made. This retreat setting provides an opportunity to get away from the stresses and responsibilities in our churches and concentrate on the education opportunities through the Course of Study.
The fees for attending classes at Spring Heights include a $30.00 registration fee and a tuition cost of $300 per course. The tuition also pays for your room and board. Housing will be assigned based on enrollment. You may be assigned to Dormitory Lodges or Retreat Center rooms. Assignments will be made shortly before classes begin. Please be prepared with your own linens and towels. If you have special needs, please contact Spring Heights directly by calling 304-927-5865. All of the meals are taken in a common dining hall, which provides the opportunity to build lasting friendships as well as have conversation with the faculty who are also staying at Spring Heights and sharing meals with the students.
A current course schedule is included on this website giving you the dates of each course. At this time you may take two courses during each term, fall and spring. Our instructors all have Masters, Doctor of Ministry or Ph.D.s and have either served or grown up in small membership churches. One of the great advantages of Spring Heights is the accessibility of the instructors to the students during the weekend and between sessions.
